S. Arabia bears contemptuous acts for fear from US: MP

Tehran, May 1, IRNA – Chairman of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Heshmatollah Falahat-Pisheh said on Tuesday that Saudi Arabia does not show reaction to US contemptuous acts for fear of annihilation.

“Trump is under pressure inside the US for his stances vis-à-vis Saudi Arabia, as his military aid continues contrary to Congress’ will since it has direct impact on massacre of the Yemeni children,” he said.

The MP further noted that Saudi Arabian diplomats played a role in September 11 attack, as they carried weapons and ammunition and carried out the incident through Al-Qaeda.

Referring to killing of Khashoggi by the Saudi Arabia, he said that Trump tried to maintain US-Saudi Arabia relations by covering up the issue.

When Trump clearly announces that Saudi Arabia is a country with oil and it should be milked, he is formally looking down upon it, but Riyadh shows no reaction, Falahat-Pisheh said.

Asked why a Muslim country should be treated in this way, he said that the people have no role in the government and if they leaved under a democratic government, they would never tolerate such behaviors.
